March 15th - The Moth GrandSLAM...
It is always fun to experience something new! I like going to events – sporting, plays, music, comedy, and so on. So, having the opportunity to check out one I have never been to, was an easy decision.
My phone binged, an early morning text. As I checked it out, my neighbor friend was asking if I wanted to take their extra ticket and go to the Moth GrandSLAM Storytelling Championship with them. First thing I thought, what the heck is it? Of course, I Ggoogled. It looked interesting and I do have a fondness for stories.
Glad I chose to check it out. The theme for the 9 ‘finalists’ competing for the championship was Crash Course. We listened to a wide range of real-life, 5 minute stories. I was fascinated by how each presenter crafted their story and some of them were pretty deep, complicated, and endearing. Stuff scripts are based upon. In the end, I may not have agreed with the deemed champion, but I was grateful for the enjoyment of being introduced to such an experience.
A magic exists in telling of the story.
Hmmm, and the champion is…day 224!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
